Finally, a Good Long(ish) Run

Today I was initially planning to run five miles but ended up running 7.1 mi.  Figured I'd take tomorrow off from running, do an easy 4 Thursday, then pray to the running gods that Sunday's race can be pulled off with smiles.  I didn't feel nearly as bad doing 7 today as I thought I would.  Good sign.  Yes, I could have gone a couple more miles.  No, I don't think 13.1 today would have been pretty.  Good news is the shin is holding up well.  I ran on the sandy shoulder of the bike path at the beach which was terribly boring but the best surface I have to run on.  I'd much rather of had a good jaunt around Golden Gate Park, but didn't want to do any asphalt running quite yet.

It's been pretty foggy here in San Francisco lately and today was all blue skies and sunshine.  So I busted out my Sugoi top I had purchased to wear during my first triathlon for a test run.  It's quite comfy and I'm looking forward to running in it more often in the future.  With the sunshine I was also able to get some heat-acclimation in for the hotter Southern CA climate.  I can't believe the DL Half is almost here.  Time sure flies.

Hope to run into you on Sunday! Or perhaps during the expo. By the way, Mario looks adorable in that second picture of your previous blog. It is because of that cute face that I really want a bunny now!
